If you're thinking about making any changes to your home or garden, it's important to get in touch and let us know. As a condition of your tenancy agreement, you'll need to receive written consent from us before the work is carried out.
This includes, but isn't limited to, alterations to doors, walls, flooring, bathrooms, kitchens, fireplaces and internal room layouts. We also ask that you get in touch before making any changes to areas outside your property. This includes grassed areas and hedges, and the assembly of outbuildings, lean-tos and sheds.
If changes are carried out without our consent, you may be asked to undo the work and return the property to its original condition at your expense. In more serious cases, we may even take legal action, which could result in the ending of your tenancy.

As a shared owner or leaseholder, it's fine to make simple improvements to your home such as painting, carpeting and shelving. However, if you want to make larger changes, it's important to speak to us and get our written permission, as specified in the terms of your lease. For more information click here.
Some alteration requests can be made on our website below. Occasionally, if certain conditions are met, permission will be granted automatically, however, if your account is in arrears, permission will not be granted.
If you're seeking permission regarding working from home, having a lodger or keeping a pet, you can do so through your online account.
